It was a busy Tuesday for DHS athletes. All four court sport teams played their home openers, and the golfers were at Eagle’s Landing for NorWOSSA golf.
The golfers had a great day, with the girls winning the NorWOSSA Gold medal and the boys bringing home Silver. Amanda Wheatley defended her title to win the Individual NorWOSSA girls championship with Brett Getson finishing 5th overall in the boy’s division. The teams now travel to Fort Frances next week for the NWOSSA final.
In volleyball, the Senior boys took out the Fort Frances Muskies in four sets, 25-21, 20-25, 25-20 and 25-18. The Junior boys played hard but came up a bit short, falling to the Muskies in three, 25-20, 25-21, 25-17.
On the basketball court we had two close games, with the Senior girls falling 25-19 against the Muskies. Melissa Felske made 9 points to lead all scorers. Jessica Skillen added 6.
The Junior girls turned up the heat late in the game, but were unable to catch up to the Muskies, finishing down 14 for a 30-26 final score. Morgan Church scored 13 points and Emile Gardam made 6.
Congrats to all Eagles Athletes for your efforts!
Eagles Court sports travel to Kenora to take on Beaver Brae on September 30th. Look for a rematch against Fort Frances at home on October 6th.
Don’t forget to come out to the Eagles Football homecoming match this Friday, September 25th at 2:00 pm.
